Greece and European finance ministers began talks on Monday to discuss Greece's request to revise the terms of its bailout.

Greece is facing pressure to extend the bailout rather than let it expire at the end of the month, but Alexis Tsipras of the Syriza party won the election for prime minister last month on promises to end the austerity measures that have accompanied the bailout in Greece.

Slate’s Jordan Weissman joins Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson with details on the debt talks.
